Wireless headphones are now the standard for music fans, they have been around for a while but first models were buggy, clunky, or the sound was just poor. For the one’s in which the sound wasn’t poor, they were incredibly expensive.
Then beats came along, as they do, and kicked wireless headphones into the mainstream. Of course, beats have their many flaws, some say that they are just a fashion accessory, or that the sound is sub-par and bass heavy, but most importantly they were too expensive.
Well after a couple of years of a new technology you usually see it trickle down to affordable makers and then we get something like the Skullcandy range.
First up the Skullcandy Uproar is the baby of the group. This is a great entry into the wireless market, lightweight and made with premium materials the Uproar are very comfortable on the head.
The soft ear cups ensure supreme comfort all while getting incredible sound from the headphones. Add to the list Bluetooth Mic and controls and we’re at the races. This is all without mentioning the 10-hour battery life to make sure your music is always where it needs to be, with you at all times.
